I have had my tank 2 weeks (I know a short time), and I am doing a fishless cycle and I have been adding 3-4pppm ammonia every 2/3 days. Last 3/4 days when I have done my tests the Ammonia is at 0ppm but Nitries are up at 8ppm and Nitrates 80ppm. They don't seem to be coming down.
Do I do a water change to bring them down? If so how much?
Do I keep adding Ammonia? 1-2ppm?
Or do I just leave it now?
My tank is a Juwel Rio 180. I have removed the carbon filter after a week and am adding Seachem Flourish twice a week for my crips, anubias, amazon sword and something else (can't remember the name), I also have a healthy amount of algae growing on all my plants and 2 pieces of drift wood. PH is 7/7.5, temp fluctuates from 25.5 to 26.5 celsius, KH
is 5dKH and GH
I am very unsure as every site/video seems to say something different.
